Quote from: kelvinIndeed, editing is perhaps the most important aspect of making a good film. There are quite a few editing styles that can be distinguished. My proposals for differenciation:dialectical editing: editing that builds up a climax. It is dialectical: it carries the film and opposes antagonistic features that converge into a higher, purer, or let's say a more stable harmony. example: Battleship Potemkinconservative editing: editing that forms harmony within the process of editing. There is no converging to a higher level. Harmony is given, harmony must be preserved. example: Triumph of the Willexpressive editing: there is no harmony that must be preserved or created. It often expresses the director's/editor's standpoint. example: A bout the soufflenarrative editing: The editing follows the film. This is the most "classical" approach. example: lots of them, so to say.Feel free to criticize.

Quote from: OnomatopoeiaAnother person (not sure who; I'm hoping someone will refresh my memory) theorized that it's best to start a scene after it's begun, and end it before the natural finish.
